    EE site phone reception

    EE literally have a dedicated mast on site, so reception is always good, however congestion on the network can be bad, so data is usually poor, facetime etc can be hit and miss. If you're sending texts, add the time you sent it to the message, eg: 'sent at 17:18' in case delivery is delayed. avoids confusion If you're in east caravan though, reception sucks 😕

    New Logo for the Festival

    I'm guessing the Tor, but it's questionable

    New Logo for the Festival

    I'm guessing this is some sort of joke? It looks like 20 mins in MSPaint

    looks like you posted the 'live' image, so it changes depending on what time of day you read the thread

    Glastonbury Virgin

    I'm just echoing what everyone else has said really, but my tips: get there as early as you can, gates open 8am-sih on the Wednesday take care of your feet - you'll be walking literal miles and miles I prefer boots and cycle clips on my trousers if it's damp underfoot, but if you take wellies, wear long socks if you wear shorts/skirt etc as they -will- rub the back of your legs plan on seeing a few 'big' bands, then you can say you saw who you went to see, and for the rest of the week, just pick what looks good on the program, or pick a stage/area at random and see whats up - explore new things! the cabaret and comedy tents are surprisingly good for wednesday and thursday, when all the main stages are closed, check out everything above the railway line - green fields etc theres a skatepark in the greenpeace area, they will lend out boards, but I take my own regarding the railway line - it's a handy way to cut across the site, but the shangri-la end gets cordened off from 11PM-sih on fri-sat-sun to help with a one way pedestrian system (this may change for this year, who knows) try different food - theres hundreds of food stalls from all over the world budged about £7-9 per meal loads of bars on site, so no need to drag loads of beers around with you, but I find it's worth having enough on me to last a headliner performance, that way I don't need to go to the bar half way through. and one I fail to observe every year - don't peak too early! if it's sunny and dry on the first day you get there, the temptation is to run around all day trying to see everything - don't do it! you'll probably end up with blisters and will hobble for the rest of the festival Pace yourself. also, use the bins, if the bin nearest you is full, go to the next one, and so on. I -do- hope it's dry

    Glastonbury Memorabilia Around Your House

    I have a 'beware of the long drops' print from the glastonbury free press framed and hung in our loo Its from the first time they were there, when they were just giving the posters away for free, which was nice

    Muddy / non-muddy years

    I've been to all the festivals since 95 (sunny) and I think 98 was possibly the 'worst' as it rained a lot suring the festivat as far as I can remember. dug out some old pics though, that seem to refelct what I vaguely remember the condtions being like: 97: 98: 99: 00: 03: 04: 05: 07:
